    Had to chain up the rear axle because the last person to work on it, took all the bits to mount the wheels.

    Some kids busted out all the glass while it was back there, lights, windshields, tore the canopy, speedometer... I hope they come back

    All I need are some brake parts and axle parts, apparently 2.5 ton rockwell axles are pretty popular and therefore shouldn't be a difficult fix, I've just got to get some other projects off my plate first

    That looks like a fun project. Once running, that will be great for deer camp.

    Which engine is in it? the white multi fuel or cont diesel. I turned a many a wrench on one of those in the 70's and early 80's.

    I can close my eyes and see the finished product - a [FONT=arial, Arial, Helvetica]US M2 fifty caliber machine gun mounted in rear.
    A number of ammo boxes strapped down in bed.

    If I am anywhere near that truck, those two won't be "manning" anything but ME!
